What better day to make and follow some It's Not Rocket Science Resolutions than the American Diabetes Association's 25th annual Diabetes Alert Day - today Tuesday March 26th. Today, the American Diabetes Association challenges everyone to take the Diabetes Risk Test at Facebook.com/AmericanDiabetesAssociation. It contains algorithms that will enable you to assess your risk for Type II Diabetes. You can also participate in the test at http://www.StopDiabetes.com or by calling 1-800-DIABETES. If you don't get to it today, it will still be there tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that and so on.
Twenty-six million people have diabetes and 7 million of those don't even realize they have it. Studies show that Type II diabetes can be prevented or delayed by losing just 7 percent of bodyweight through regular physical activity (30 minutes a day for 5 days a week) and healthy eating.
So, 1.) take the Diabetes Risk Test to know your risk and 2.) take care of yourself. Have a great day. Remember, It's Not Rocket Science.
